I'm available for custom illustration, sketch, and concept work on a freelance basis.
Please send your details and questions to email@example.com
(let me know if you use Discord, we can use that to talk).
For digital paintings in my usual style, my starting prices are as follows:
For digital paintings, my starting price ranges are as follows:
See this page for a detailed explanation and examples.
Price ranges are for non-exclusive commercial uses. I may still alter and sell the work myself as wallpaper/print etc. or license it to others. I might be able to offer lower prices for personal use commissions, but this depends on the project.
Exclusive use work starts 2x-4x these prices and increases depending on exclusions and timeframe. For an unlimited copyright buyout, the price will depend on the details of your piece.
*Rush work will add an extra 50-150% fee depending on the type of work and timeframe.
For other types of work, please reach out for more info:
Generally, 50% is paid upfront and 50% upon approval of the sketch, before the final illustration starts.
Within the US: I accept payment by bank transfer/EFT (ACH, Zelle, etc.), credit/debit card, and PayPal. Bank transfer/EFT methods get a 1% discount on my posted price.
International: Bank transfer/EFT systems only. (SEPA, Bacs, GiroPay, Wise, etc.) Feel free to ask for any similar payment methods used within your country, and I'll see if I'm able to use it. I do not usually accept card or PayPal due to high processing fees.
Most illustrations take 2-4 weeks to complete. Especially large illustrations may take around 1-2 months.
A few editing rounds are included in the base price, depending on the size of work. Extra sketching or editing during the process is charged by an additional hourly rate.
You will receive the final illustration JPG/PNG and PSD at 4k resolution (~4000 px).
*Though, I may charge extra for the PSD if your commission is for exclusive use or if it requires a specific layer structure.
If you have any requests (line vs color sketching, deadlines, larger file size, layer structure, budgets, etc.) feel free to let me know, and I can adjust my process.
Rough color sketches from a previous commission.
Sketch vs Finish. Progress updates will be sent about once a week.
Line sketches from a previous commission. Client chose sketch A
*It would be helpful to compile all of your character/environment descriptions, references, etc. into a single slideshow or document (or an email if it's short). This helps me understand your commission and requests more clearly.
*If you would like to explore different types of illustrations at different budgets, I'm happy to make a set of sketches for you first for an upfront fee (maybe $200-400 depending on how many and how detailed). Then we can choose one and decide the final price & timeframe from there.
I certify that all work I produce is originally composed and hand-drawn. You can see my full process for many of my paintings on YouTube. I also record the painting process for commissions when possible.
As the artist and original creator, I own copyright of the artwork and have the right to display, use, alter, and sell it in the future for any purpose. When you purchase a commission, you are purchasing a license to use the artwork under my conditions, rather than owning copyright of the artwork - this applies for both commercial or non-commercial work unless we otherwise discuss.
If you wish to have exclusive selling rights of the artwork or complete copyright ownership, please let me know, and I can offer you different terms at a price.
For more detailed information and questions on licensing/allowed use, please see Using My Works. Or, feel free to send me an email. I'm happy to answer any questions!
